Sorry if this has been asked before, search is not working.

Does anyone make:

1. Forged .22LR Lowers?
2. A complete .22LR rifle with a forged lower?

My pre-ban DPMS M4 .22 carbine has a forged lower, …

… as soon as I get it,
… it's been stuck at Chicago Airport waiting for Fed export papers for 3 weeks now.

BTW… lowers are calibre independent.

DPMS started making .22lr marked lowers last year, and they are cast not forged.

Must be a US market thing, DPMS supply forged lowers on their export .22's

could be an export thing. the five or so i saw were at their shooting range in MN. most were the original flat-top, but one was a pre-production M-4. they may have changed to forged in the production M-4. double check when you get it. on DPMS lowers if the company name and city are raised it is cast, if they are stamped in it is forged. the ones i saw still said BECKER, MN. they have since moved to St. Cloud, MN, and not sure if they switched the receiver markings yet. i hope they are forged. the reason i never bought one is because the ones i saw were cast. i'll have to look into it again.

I bought forged Oly lowers for the fact that they're marked "Cal. Multi" instead of "Cal. 5.56". I like to cover all the bases. Never was comfortable with a .223 marked lower with a 9mm or .300 Whisper upper. (Damn...where do they keep the "obsessive-compulsive" smilie...)
